Northam digs in, says he'll focus remainder of term on racial 'equity'
The Hill, Feb 9, 2019

[...]

“There are ongoing inequities to access to things like education, health care, mortgages, capital, entre­pre­neur­ship. And so this has been a real, I think, an awakening for Virginia," he said. "It has really raised the level of awareness for racial issues in Virginia. And so we’re ready to learn from our mistakes.”

Northam told the Post that he has been working to increase his understanding of racial inequality by reading "The Case For Reparations" by Ta-Nehisi Coates and chapters of "Roots" by Alex Haley. He said he also met with African-American legislators and community leaders and became more informed about the history of blackface.

He said he plans to incorporate sensitivity training into Virginia's government and also its schools and universities. He also hopes to work on increasing Medicaid enrollment and affordable housing opportunities and plans to more actively push to get rid of Confederate monuments that people might find offensive.

Translation: Northam promises henceforth to genuflect before the altar of left-wing identity politics and to adopt its catechism of accredited victims and presumptive oppressors.

That way, he gets to keep his job.

This is great.  For the rest of his term, he’ll do nothing but bow and scrape and talk about his process of becoming racially enlightened.  I’m bored before it starts.

I'm sure the white people that voted for him will be happy about being officially ignored.

The leftist and loser whites who voted for him the first time will gladly vote for him again. After all, they (like he) are democrat-communists!

Equity means Equal Outcomes, not just Equal Opportunity.

It is what Social Justice Warriors demand.
